PiwiWiwi might have a silly name, but we're totally serious about New Zealand road trips.
Our campervans are fully kitted out to comfortably transport you around New Zealand checking everything our country has to offer (beaches, walks, waterfalls, vineyards, or museums - whatever floats your particular boat...)
We have vans tall enough to stand up in yet small enough to park easily. They are all well equipped - we've been campervanning for years, so know what you need and what gets in the way - you just need to bring your clothes, buy some food, and you're away. Our vans have stereos that you can plug your iPod into (you can’t have a road trip without a soundtrack) and USB charging points to keep your gadgets full of juice. For all you surfers - we're also the only company in NZ with surfboard stroage straps in our vans to keep your boards safely out of your way when you're not in the waves. For cyclists - we have bike racks for our vans too.
All of our vans are certified SELF CONTAINED so you have access to NZ's beautiful FREEDOM CAMPING spots.
Our customers seem to be happy with what we do... why not give us a go too?

Extremely pleased with the overall Piwiwiwi experience in New Zealand.
Nick, the business owner, is incredibly professional and very friendly. He'll pick you up from the airport, provide you with every single bit of information you need to have an awesome trip. His pricing are very competitive and there are absolutely no hidden fees. Everything is explained black and white during the communication with him to secure the booking.
They cares so much about the 8 vans they own, that he and his wife actually clean and prep them by themselves instead of paying someone to do it. Conclusion: A very clean van, in excellent working order (not once in 20 days did we have anything fail on us) and most of all very discreet (no branding)...and trust me that's a big plus out there!
Van has got plenty of space for all your stuff, an actual full size double bed, stove, fridge, sink... and an oven! It's also fully loaded with quality cooking equipment!
100% recommend this company, enjoy your trip!

Delighted with everything after my 5 week surf / SUP tour of North and South Islands with PiwiWiwi Campervans.
I could tell from the start from the personal emails, answering all my questions including "Will a 9ft x 30" SUP fit in the roof with a 6'4" surfboard?" Answer YES! and it was easy - They both went up there in the straps and when then tilted I had almost full headroom in the middle of the van. Would have managed a 9'6" easily. Perfect - Boards safe, paddle under the bed and hired bike strapped on the back - I was away on 6250KM trip.
The van was reliable, fast enough and comfortable to do long hours on the roads, which is easy to do with that amazing landscape out of each window, everywhere you go.
Major advantage of this smaller van size is the ease of parking - Spent a week in St Clairs, Dunedin where I was able to park overlooking the point break each day and wait for optimal surf conditions while drinking tea! No larger van would have got anywhere near this spot.
I started off Freedom camping, but the camp sites are cheap - Normally $20NZ per night - Quite reasonable. 4G is nearly everywhere so navigation with Google Maps on your phone is easy - Bring a phone mount!
On my arrival and departure, Nick and Julie were most hospitable - The van was parked in the shade of an outbuilding to let me settle in and pack up in comfort - The weather was great!
If I go back to NZ I will definitely do it with PiwiWiwi Campervans.
Leave all your travel plugs etc. at home - Plenty of power by the USB chargers front and back of vans. Didn't use the portaloo, as toilets everywhere in NZ, and much better quality then I'm used to in the UK.
Do not hesitate to book - You won't get it cheaper or better elsewhere!
PS. I scored some epic surf and the surfers are pretty friendly if you are considerate in your approach! Even to a SUP!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Great experience with PiwiWiwi van. Everything was easy, Nick pick up us at the airport, book accommodation before departure.
The camper was tidy and well equiped, enough room for 2 people, you just have to bring with you your own stuff and be happy.
Have the contact directly with the owner guarantee quality and high level service.
Everything is done for the customer.
Don't hesitate it will be a great experience ++++

Thanks to PiwiWiwi we had a great experience travelling NZ. They are a family business, the contact is personal & warm. Before the trip, they gave us some practical tips, and when we were there we noticed that they really do 'the extra mile' for their customers.
While looking for campervans before the trip, we didn't know about some little details that make the travel better. The vans are very well-organised with the optimal storage vs. space ratio. They are tidy and contain all that is necessary (sheets, blankets, towels, etc.). The van was reliable, the engine ran smoothly, and we felt at ease. Although, we felt completely assured knowing their well organisation, in case of any issues.
During the trip, we really liked that there wasn't any advertisement on the van. Before the travel, we thought that a portable toilet would be necessary (which the vans do contain), but NZ is full of public toilets and showers. This made the type of campervan perfect : compact but spacious. The vans are Self-Contained, which means you can camp on all available places.
We can keep on writing all positive aspects, but there's one argument that beats all: when we come back to NZ, it will be with PiwiWiwi :-) !!
Thanks Nick & Julie, and Holly hopefully we see each other again :-)
If it was possible to give a score of 11 we would! PiwiWiwi was fantastic! My partner and I were travelling New Zealand for a month, over the winter, checking out both the North and South Island. Being a small business, the service was great! Very quick reply's on all e-mails, competitive prices and tailored service. The van was a real solid machine too. Great storage (we even managed to fit snowboarding gear for two in with all our stuff). It was a awesome to travel in this van for 4 weeks and we would do it again in a heart beat! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Nick and Julie. Can't wait to get back!
Very helpful staff/owners with specific information and very quick with a small repair on the road. Van layout very well thought through and everything you need on the road.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Niall and Anna regarding the rental of a campervan for our one month tour of New Zealand. We were met at the Auckland airport by Anna and had a lovely drive to Raglan where they are headquartered. They led us through an extensive review about the campervan and its features. They also provided us with many great suggestions about where to go and what to see. They were very enthusiastic about our trip which was a great personal touch. Niall and Anna offer great service, efficient and simple return policy and a well maintained campervan that allowed us to have the trip of a lifetime! Sue and I thank you both!
We have 4 great weeks with the Campervan from PiwiWiwi. The campervan was a bit older than campervans from other rentals, but the car works fantastic and was great equipped. Anna and Niall are very helpful and friendly. Thanks for the nice journey!
PiwiWiwi was just the perfect surf-van. Niall and Anna gave us a lot of good informations in advance. The campervan was very well-maintained and comfortable. We highly recommend PiwiWiwi for a surftrip around the beautiful coastlines in new zealand.
We had a fantastic time with the campervan. Although the fleet consists out of old Toyotas the camper was in excellent shape and very well maintained. Super friendly and helpful service at all times.

We have been travelling with a PiwiWiwi van for 6 weeks around the North and South Island in Februari and March with 2 adults and our 4 year old son. Niall and Anna were very helpfull, answering all questions, especially in the months before the pickup. It all gave us a good feeling about the booking and PiwiWiwi itself. We had a great time and the van met our expectations. When we had some problems with the breaks, they managed to have it solved right the next day which was on a Saturday!!
Great service, fully equiped and well maintained / perfect running vans!
Thanks Niall and Anna!
Great service! Really really great service, and that's worth a lot! Comfortable campervan and great to have solar panels on the roof so you never have to worry about electricity. Got a very good price too since we picked up a deal from their website to drive the van back up north.
Thanks to Anna and Niall for the lovely and very useful campervan. We really enjoyed travelling with 'Jimmy' through New Zealand. The van is very well equipped, reduced to the max and easy to drive. And you get a free shuttle from and to Auckland Aitport. We highly recommend the PiwiWiwi Campervans!
